“We look at our new friendships through the pain of our old ones. We measure our new love against the toxic romantic partners of the past. We look at a similar opportunity and automatically determine its success or failure relative to what we have attempted before. Lastly, some of us even dream, plan and/or strategize within the limitations of our last failure. When the Father makes all this new, things change and it’s okay to believe that what you’re seeing is different this time.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
